According to biologists at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, humans have an instinctual desire to cooperate and be polite. Additionally, we want to avoid stigmatized behavior so that we are not ostracized by others.

A car accident, no matter how minor it seemed at the time, is a major disruption in your life. For many people, the idea of filing a lawsuit against the other party feels awkward and uncomfortable. Asking for money is never easy, but it can be a financial necessity to pay for accident-related expenses.
